Tens of thousands of individuals are returning home from deployment in Southwest Asia and Afghanistan.
As these heroes adjust into civilian life, it’s important for the American economy to help facilitate the transition with open arms. Franchising opportunities like those with Signarama are an ideal career path for veterans, as they provide scalability, seamless training opportunities, and a necessity for operational excellence and execution.
Signarama’s VetFran Program
This is why Signarama has developed the VetFran program. The program is geared toward providing veterans with accessibility to franchise opportunities. VetFran offers financial assistance, training opportunities, and industry support to those who have helped make their country into what it is today. Through VetFran and similar programs, thousands of veterans have flourished in franchisee owner positions in more than 400 franchise systems that span a number of business categories.
Signarama VetFran Opportunities
At Signarama, veteran discounts on franchise fees are based on an individual’s years of service:
- 10% discount if the veteran has served less than 11 years
- 25% discount if the veteran has served 11-20 years
- 50% discount if the veteran has served 20 or more years
A Match Made in Heaven
It’s no secret that franchising takes strong character traits like discipline, passion, commitment, and leadership. It’s also no secret that these character traits tend to flourish among the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to military service. For this reason, Signarama is fully committed to ensuring that interested veterans receive support and opportunities to guide them on their path to being a part of the world’s largest sign franchise.
Signarama President “JT” Jim Tatem says, “We try to target veterans as potential franchisee candidates. Veterans have already demonstrated the ability to follow a system and defined structure. They are used to working hard on a specific task or mission, and they come home with strong leadership skills and an exceptional sense of working as a team. These are all attributes that make for a successful franchise owner.”
No Experience Required
For those who are interested, it’s important to note that no experience is required. We’ll provide extensive training, resources, and support to get each new franchisee well-versed in our systems, processes, and know-how for running a successful sign franchise with Signarama. Our training program takes place at our headquarters in West Palm Beach, and each franchisee will also receive ongoing in-store support after the store opens.
